I came across a series of children's books that are beautifully written and illustrated by Steve Jenkins. All of the creatures in his books are created using a collage of carefully chosen papers. My favorite book of his is titled "Actual Size" in which some animals are displayed at their entire actual size while others can only be featured by what fits on the page of the 11" x 9" book. I like this book best because it shows close ups of the paper revealing it's unique texture and makeup. Here are a few images from his books and website.
